Abstract: The Young Engineers of South Africa Programme (YESA) also endorses the e-Education and the Science and Technology White Papers. The main focus area will be on Information Communication Technologies (ICT) in education and the way that they can impact on the nurturing of future Science, Engineering and Technology (SET) graduates within a developing world context. The inherent power of ICTs in classrooms needs to be harnessed to improve the efficiency, accessibility and quality of the learning process in South Africa while providing practical interventions underpinned by effective research, in order to meaningfully inform educational policy and practice. This intervention aims to confront the challenges in education in our country while fostering creativity and innovation. It also has the potential to provide a vehicle to trial a range of innovations emanating from the Meraka Institute especially in the areas of wireless technologies and robotics. It is, therefore, imperative to link research, development and innovation to implementation within a framework of an overall ICTs in Education strategy
